I know what it means to be a first class attorney since I have a number of attorneys in my family. I can attest that Mr. Leibowitz and his staff represent the most professional, friendly, and empathetic bankruptcy services out there. LakeLaw all the way!!

I recently had the pleasure of working with David Leibowitz on a bankruptcy matter. Even though we were adversaries in the case, David was always courteous and professional. I found him to be very knowledgeable and diligent in representing his client’s interests while at the same time always acting like a true gentleman. I would not hesitate to recommend him to a family member or a friend.

– John L. Grazian

“I choose Lakelaw based on the complimentary reviews I initially read about 5 years ago. Mr. Leibowitz and his staff have always been very helpful and professional. Even more so now and I was discharged almost 5 years ago. I continue to seek their expertise with issues I’m having with a 2nd mortgage. The customer service Lakelaw provides is excellent. Even during the bankruptcy process, they made me feel like I was making the right decision when I felt embarrassed about having to file.”

– Kim Bond

I read about his expertise in the WSJ so I reached out to him and within an hour of my email he responded with his private number which he promptly answered and then proceeded to explain my circumstances even though this meant I would not need to hire him. His candor, transparency, and helpfulness is much appreciated and will not be forgotten if I, or an acquaintance, requires his services in the future. Thank you!

– Steven Cohen

“David Leibowitz and his team at Lakelaw Chicago are totally professional, clear, concise and speedy. They made the whole process of bankruptcy more painless than I could imagine.

– Paul B. Magit

“I reached out to Lakelaw last month when I needed some advice concerning a large apartment related debt. David Leibowitz called me back promptly the next day and offered to meet and discuss the situation with me before the end of the week. Their office was close and convenient in the Loop, and the I found the consultation overall very helpful. He clearly outlined my options and their consequences and pointed me toward useful resources to aid me in deciding whether filling bankruptcy would be a good path of action. If I do not find a way to settle the debt and choose file bankruptcy, I will be contacting Lakelaw to help me though the process.”

– Andrew Fox

“David Leibowitz represented me in a very complicated case dealing with a divorce arbitration/bankruptcy filing. He responded instantly to my legal needs, was very aggressive in his representation, and clearly knows the bankruptcy laws forward and backward. He is very professional, will not waste time and got the job done. I am very happy with his services.”
